Representatives from 19 countries toured three North Dakota farms Thursday.
The farm leaders, all associated with Communicating for Agriculture, were visiting farms that had served as hosts to foreign exchange workers to see the environment young people from their countries experience while working on an American farm. On the Roger Gussiaas farm north of Carrington they got a chance to see a modern farm operation and enjoy a country picnic.
Sens. Kent Conrad and Byron Dorgan and Rep. Earl Pomeroy, all D-N.D., announced today that North Dakota will receive $5.5 million from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Emergency Conservation Program for farmland damage caused by floods or other natural disasters from 2008 and 2009.
